A definite own goal for those who thought this bloke was just a comic and was going to be a funny Jew who could be kicked around by the hyena crowd.
The audience wasn't impressed by Rhiannon's flog a dead horse propaganda soliloquy in favour of BDS and she fared worse when Guttman went on the attack.
McGeough's fumbling explanation as to how he came to use the term "hyenas" in his infamous Walkely Awardwinning article was so hilarious that he made Guttman look like the straight man in a comedy routine gone wrong.
Worse still were his comments about the New York Jews targetted by BDSers over in the States. Dangerous stuff about which more will almost certainly be heard later.
It was good to see bipartisan agreement from both the Government and the Opposition on the evil of the BDS movement which was so predictably supported by Rhiannon and McGeough.
POSTSCRIPT [8 June 2011]
This Australian Editorial neatly dissects why the Apartheid analogy is wrong on Israel - Tutu is wrong on Israel boycott
The Marrickville campaign, which was opposed by all political leaders including senator Bob Brown and which would have cost ratepayers dearly, was thankfully dumped. On the ABC's Q&A on Monday, Greens senator-elect Lee Rhiannon made a fool of herself talking up the boycotts and claiming Palestinians were subject to apartheid. Archbishop Tutu should be wise to such nonsense.
